Creatures on this unpredictable planet continually adapt new skills to ensure their survival. By using comparative anatomy techniques, scientists can better understand why certain life-forms are well-suited for evolutionary success and why others have become extinct. This class will discuss the functional anatomy of prehistoric vertebrates by using these comparative techniques and comparing them with modern counterparts. Instructors Sue Ware, PhD, and Todd Green will use an interactive format using fossils, museum-quality casts, modern bones, and a virtual lab. This is an elective for the Paleontology Certification Program; however, there are no prerequisites for this course.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the program.
